For my second installment I’ve very excited to be talking about one of the best music producer’s out there today. His name is Brian Burton, but he is most commonly reffered to as Danger Mouse. A musician himself he has been associated with the bands Gnarels Barkley and Broken Bells; both bands were collaborations with other artists. Gnarles Barkley paired Burton with singer C Lo Green. Apart from his performing career Danger Mouse has also been at the helm of Grammy nominated and winning albums. He is a two time Producer of the Year winner and also has seen victories for bands like The Black Keys, Gnarles Barkley, and his collaboration with The Shins frontman James Mercer in Broken Bells.
Danger Mouse got his start in Athens Georgia DJing parties and working at a local radio station. He describes his production style as that of a film directors role. He works hard to craft the albums he works on to be like great films. A great example of his talent is the song “Crazy” by Gnarles Barkley. “Crazy” was voted The Song of The Decade for 2000-2010.
